There will be (at least) three takings conferences held during October and November.
The Georgetown Environmental Law & Policy Institute will hold its annual Litigating Takings conference at Harvard Law School on October 27-28. As always, GELPI has put together an impressive list of panelists who will discuss the Supreme Court's recent trilogy of takings cases (Lingle, Kelo and San Remo) and various other takings issues.
William & Mary Law School will host the Second Annual Brigham-Kanner Property Rights Conference on October 29:
In conjunction with the Institute on Bill of Rights Law, the William & Mary Property Rights Project will honor Professor Richard Epstein as the recipient of the second annual Brigham-Kanner Prize. The conference will include academic commentary on Professor Epstein’s property rights scholarship, a discussion of recent developments in takings law, and a debate on public use doctrine in the aftermath of the Supreme Court’s 2005 Kelo opinion.
Participants in the William & Mary conference include Vicki Been (NYU), Dana Berliner (Institute for Justice), James Ely (Vanderbilt), Richard Epstein (University of Chicago), Michael Heller (Columbia) and Eric Kades (William & Mary).
The University of Florida will host New Takes on Takings: Kelo, Lingle, Canker, and More on November 17-18. Presenters include Michael Allan Wolf (Florida), James Krier (Michigan), Nicole Stelle Garnett (Notre Dame), Eduardo Penalver (Fordham), Douglas Kmiec (Pepperdine) and Mark Fenster (Florida).
I'll be at the GELPI conference; if you are there, please say hello.
